FC Internazionale Milano announces that Goran Pandev joined the club on a permanent deal this morning. The Macedonian striker has signed a contract until 30 June 2014.
Pandev was available on a free transfer after Lazio were ordered to release him from his contract, and several top clubs in Europe. The 26-year-old forward, who has already started training with his new club and could feature against AC Chievo Verona on Wednesday, joined Inter ahead of the 2001/2002 season but after loan spells at Spezia Calcio and AC Ancona, he moved to Lazio on permanent basis in 2004 without making a single first-team appearance. Pandev scored 48 goals in 159 Serie A games for the Biancocelesti, finishing as the top scorer in last season’s Coppa Italia with six goals as the Rome side lifted the trophy, but did not feature at all this season following a dispute with the club.
The documents relating to his transfer have been registered at the Lega Calcio’s offices.
Pandev will wear the number 27 shirt. His presentation to the media will be planned for after Wednesday’s match against Chievo.
